Raw Red Pepper Soup – Fresh and Light
Summer is winding down and I decided to say goodbye with a lovely light raw red pepper soup. I used the last of my cherry tomatoes from my garden and juiced some raw red bell peppers to make a delicate soup. Most raw food soup recipes contain avocado, nuts, or oils. This raw soup recipe is really light without any added fat, but you are free to add a drizzle of cold pressed oil or some chopped avocado for a more filling soup.
For this recipe I used two of my favorite kitchen toys. I made some lovely English cucumber noodles with my Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Slicer and I juiced the bell pepper in my trusty Omega Vert 350HD juicer, my favorite juicer of all time!
If you don’t have a spiral slicer you can just shred the cucumber or use a vegetable peeler to make noodles, and if you don’t have a juicer just blend the soup base ingredients in a blender and then strain. Straining is important for the right consistency, so don’t skip that step!
Raw Red Pepper Soup
1 cup red bell pepper juice (from about 2-3 red bell peppers)
1 cup carrot juice (from about 16 ounces of carrots)
1 tablespoon sweet white or yellow miso (soy or chickpea miso is fine)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth and set aside.
1 cup English cucumber noodles using the Paderno Spiral Slicer (Using about 1/2 of an English cucumber)
2 teaspoons chopped chives
2 teaspoon minced bell pepper
8 sliced cherry tomatoes for garnish
Parsley sprigs for garnish
Pour the soup base into bowls and add the garnishes. Serves 1-2 people. Enjoy!
